Loui Eriksson to room. Flattened by Orpik. Looked very woozy at first.— Fluto Shinzawa (@FlutoShinzawa) December 8, 2013
The 28-year-old Eriksson has five goals and 14 points in 23 games in his first season with the Bruins.
Updated: Eriksson will not return to the game, as per the Bruins’ official Twitter account.
